Me too. Just got done dealing with the dang alarm on my last trip.

Uh, you might want to look at a higher rated device for operating a Maxxfan. The inrush current for the Maxfan motor is almost double the 3 amp rating of that board.

I just refill the disposable containers using this adaptor. Works great and 100 times better for the environment. There are like new disposable containers at the garbage drop stations at provincial parks after people have used them only once.

I had a friend who used to fill the disposable containers. He quit after a couple would not close and had to allow them to empty to the air, not good for the environment. They are disposable for safety reasons.

Enjoy,

Perry

I had the very same thing happen, except in my case the tanks began leaking a few weeks after refilling 4, 1lb. tanks. Stupidly, I had them stored in my kitchen pantry, and one day I came home to a house smelling of propane. Thankfully nothing worse happened, but I stopped refilling the single-use tanks and purchased the Flame King tanks.

BTW, I had used one of those adapters to refill Coleman tanks for years, without a problem... I guess I was lucky.

We purchased brass caps with a gasket to screw to the tops in case one decides to leak. If the cap is on it's full, but when empty I don't screw on the cap.

Enjoy,

Perry
